China’s employment laws are complicated and highly local. Both Chinese law and the Chinese government favor employees. Foreign companies doing business in China face complex China labor and employment issues and questions every day – often without even realizing it. What works in your home country has very little in common with what works in China. Employment compliance has become one of the most important issues foreign companies face in China and it is the rare foreign company that gets it right. Employee disputes are becoming considerably more common and government enforcement is getting significantly more stringent. It virtually always costs less for your company to deal proactively with China employment law issues than to wait to address them only after they have become a dispute. As such, it is imperative that you understand the framework of China employment law and steps you can take to mitigate risk.
